Villa Albarosa A is a gracious house by the coast which boasts a terrace, a
patio, and a private garden with a breathtaking view of the sea and the coast.
It has access to a shared swimming-pool.
Villa Albarosa A is 40 square meters (about 430.5 square feet) large and it can
sleep up to three people. It is equipped with air-conditioning and large parking
Villa Albarosa has a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a living-room with
a kitchenette and a sofa, a patio, a large terrace, and a garden.
The villa is located on a prominent stretch of coast between Vietri sul Mare and
Amalfi, 5 km (about 3.1 miles) away from Vietri sul Mare.
From Vietri you have the beginning of the coastal road along which you will see
all the famous towns of the Amalfi Coast one after the other as you pass by.
After running along the coast and going past Amalfi and Positano, you will be
able to arrive in Sorrento no later than in an hour.
Villa Albarosa is a simple one-storey cottage nestled in a terraced land in a
prominent position. It is placed before the blue sky and the blue sea, and it is
surrounded by the vivid green of a lawn and the lush Mediterranean vegetation.
The cottage is divided in two halves (parts), reason why you will find two
same-size apartments, Villa Albarosa A and Villa Albarosa B.
As soon as you arrive on the terraces, your eyes will meet the wide arch of the
Gulf of Salerno: on the right you will have a picturesque glimpse of the Amalfi
Coast, while on the left and further away you will see the mountainous coast of
the Parco Nazionale del Cilento (National Park of Cilento).
And if you look down right below, you will see a long and steep stretch of
verdant coast due to cultivations of lemons which seem to plunge into the sea.
And at sea level, you will see from the above the little village of Vietri Sul
Mare, unmistakable for its wide beach of grey sand and the large shining
majolica dome and bell tower of its cathedral.
The air is transparent and perfume-filled, and the colors are bright: by looking
around near the villa, you will be able to see bits of the roofs of some houses
immersed in the surrounding green.
You will soon realize, just as I did, that this place is an angle of paradise.
Lucky the one who can live here forever!
The villa is found inside an age-old seven-hectare farm still fenced in by a
high and old stone wall. The terrain descends from up above the coast down
towards the sea, and it is cultivated with lemon pergolas characteristic of the
Amalfi Coast. On the highest part of the land, there's an age-old main villa and
other three small ones which are about 100 meters (about 328 feet) away one from
The agricultural farm, besides growing lemons, produces the famous Limoncello
liqueur and other liqueurs made of fennel and laurel. You can taste these and
other products at the main villa.

discretion in case you need any help. You can book dinners at the main villa or
even book guided tours or excursions on boats.

shape. It is 16 x 6 meters (about 53 x 20 feet) large and dug into the rock. It
also has a crystal-plate cover. Near the pool you will find a sun-drenched area
with umbrellas, deck chairs, a bathroom, and showers.

Villa Albarosa A is completely on the ground floor. You enter it from the garden
through a large arched patio door which will lead you to the living-room. From
the living-room, a second arched patio door will enable you to reach the
wonderful terrace overlooking the sea and the coast.
The terrace is shaded by a pergola and furnished with sun loungers and beautiful
wrought-iron and majolica garden furniture. Colorful Bougainvillea grow in
terracotta vases, and vases of red dangling cranesbills embellish the railing.
You will enjoy spending time on this terrace. You will be able to dine under the
stars, or if can wake up early in the morning, even to enjoy a fantastic dawn:
the sun rises behind the Cilento mountains, away and with sky-blue hues
surrounded by a pinkish light which inundates the entire arch of the Gulf of
Salerno and the sea…
In the living-room, you will find a couch, a chair-bed, a television, and a
table with chairs. In an angle there is the gracious kitchenette. It is equipped
with a two-burner stove and a fridge.
From the living-room you can reach the double bedroom, where you will find a
large four-post bed, a comfortable closet, and a small television set. The
bathroom with shower is beautiful and elegant, and you reach it through the
